witf introduces 'Smart Talk Friday' radio program

Former State Dept. official on WikiLeaks

Written by Scott LaMar, Smart Talk Host/Executive Producer | Oct 24, 2011 8:26 PM

Radio Smart Talk for Tuesday, October 25:

Last March, Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, P.J. Crowley resigned after telling an audience that the Pentagon's handling of the Army private accused of leaking sensitive information to WikiLeaks was "ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid." 

Crowley's remarks came just a few months after WikiLeaks had released some 250,000 confidential U.S. State Department cables.  It was latest in a series of bombshell disclosures from WikiLeaks with military and government secret documents that have embarassed officials and resulted in U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder investigating espionage charges against Wikileaks.

Crowley is now the Omar Bradley Chair in Strategic Leadership at the U.S. Army War College, Dickinson College, and Penn State Law School -- all in Carlisle.  He will speak Tuesday at Lewis Katz Hall at the Penn State Law School (6 p.m.) on "Wikileaks: One Year Later."

Crowley will also be on Tuesday's Radio Smart Talk to discuss Wikileaks and national security.
